Workout Emergency!

Hello Everyone!

For those of you that do not know me, I am Janice, and I started working with the Fortified Family earlier this year.  I want to express my thanks to those of you who participate in my classes and all of you who have welcome me with open arms. I want to invite anyone else out there that is looking for a super encouraging, hard working and fun fitness family.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to get to know you and help you reach your fitness goals!

Today, I have a true story that I just HAD to share.

We have a very dedicated and disciplined Fortified client who ran into a little trouble when putting in some fitness work at home!  Recently, this person received an Apple watch as a gift. Now, it’s true that an Apple Watch is a great tool for tracking your fitness plans… but sometimes great plans can backfire. While, performing a difficult series of pushups, a phone call was made from the Apple Watch, this accidental call wasn’t just some random call to some random person, this call was an emergency call made to 9-1-1!

Now, I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like I need emergency help during my work outs – so get it!  But, apparently, if you press and hold a button on the side of the watch, an emergency call is made in a case of emergency and viola! you get an operator offering emergency assistance as easy as that! And now we’ve all learned something new!

Now this person did the right thing and explained the situation to the operator and revealed that no help was really needed. Even so, the local police were knocking at the door shortly after the call was made.  Can you imagine explaining this one?!

I love how you share your lives and inspire me.

When I think about the drive of this person working out in-between our Fortified workouts, I recall Philippians 3:14, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  I see an example of perseverance and purpose.

When life throws an unexpected “watch call” at you, you just laugh and move on, now you have a good story to tell. I certainly, enjoyed hearing about this particular distraction and hope you did too.  Let’s keep pressing on in a mental, physical and spiritual manner to live our lives with God’s purpose every day and share our lives with each other along the way!

I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!  I certainly will be giving thanks for you!
